All our blinds are bespoke, meaning they are made to measure for your specific installation. We offer a free consultation service where we will visit your property, discuss with you your requirements, measure up and give you a no obligation quotation.
Before we will install, we will always measure. However, if you would like to measure yourself to allow us to give you a rough quote over the phone then please follow the guide below.
You’ll need a pen and paper and a good quality steel tape measure.
The first decision to make is, do you want your blind to fit inside or outside the recess?
Inside Window Recess
Measure the width of your recess in 3 places and take the smallest measurement. If you have tiles at the bottom of the recess remember to measure between the tiles and give us this measurement.
Do the same for the drop and we’ll take it from there. We will make a small deduction from the width (and drop in the case of vertical blinds) so that your blind will sit snugly in a recess of this size.
Outside Window Recess
Decide how much you wish to overlap the recess at each side and at the top and bottom. Ideally, when raised, the blind should not obscure the window. Therefore blinds must be fixed high enough above top of window recess to allow for depth of roller mechanism or head rail and bunched slats.
Remember that the cloth width for roller blinds will be 2.8cm narrower than the overall size.
